Cute Is What We Aim For
There's A Class For This
4th Sept 06 / Fueled By Ramen
Cute Is What We Aim For release their debut album 'The Same Old Blood Rush With A New Touch' on September 18th through Fueled By Ramen Records. The album is preceded by debut single 'There's A Class For This' available on limited edition shaped picture disk, out September 4th.
Cute Is What We Aim For came together in January 2005, driven by the four members' desire to cast their own upbeat spin onto modern pop. The band's bedroom demo recordings were posted at a variety of online sites and quickly lit up broadband connections coast-to-coast, earning the young combo widespread national exposure within months of their formation.
'The Same Old Blood Rush With A New Touch' has been produced by Matt Squire (Panic! At The Disco, Thrice), 'The Same Old Blood Rush With A New Touch' abounds with contagious energy, flaunting Cute Is What We Aim For's distinctive gift for brightly brash melodies and endlessly witty turns of phase. Described by singer Shaant as "power pop with intellectual lyrics," exuberant songs such as 'I Put The 'Metro' In Metronome' and the animated first single, 'There's A Class For This' (which features guest vocals from William Beckett of The Academy Is.), see the singer flipping though his virtual diary to unleash canny couplets detailing anxious post-adolescent introspection as well as his own observations on life, love and the teenage class struggle.
